Mitsubishi Fuel Drain


Putting Petrol in a Diesel Mitsubishi is a usual problem. And what you should do about it is based on various factors. If you would like to know what it is best to do to fix it then stay with me.
Listed here the key variables to consider whenever deciding whether to have your car drained:

  1. Exactly how much Petrol did you put in to the Mitsubishi, considering that the fuel capacity of your Mitsubishi L200 2.5 DI-D Twin Cab is in most cases around 75 litres?
    1. Hardly any Petrol, less than 3.75 litres of Petrol in a Diesel L200 2.5 DI-D Twin Cab will most of the time not really be a big problem. Experience has proven to us that quantities under 3.75 litres (about 5% of the whole fuel tank capacity) is often able to be completely diluted by entirely topping the remainder of the tank with the right fuel.
      It is extremely unusual to come across a motor vehicle going through difficulties with less than 5% incorrect fuel contamination. Remember that it's infrequently found - not impossible to encounter. There are certain vehicles that don't endure any level of fuel contamination in the slightest.
    2. In between 3.75 and 7.5 litres of Petrol in the Mitsubishi (5 to 10%) is a 50/50 condition. Our expertise has shown us that as many people get away with it as all those who don't. Whenever deciding on whether or not to chance it and simply fill it up consider that it is very much like betting your car on black - you've got a 50/50 chance of it being ok.
    3. Anything over 7.5 litres of Petrol in a Diesel L200 2.5 DI-D Twin Cab really should straight away be removed seeing that your likelihood of getting away with that quantity of contamination is certainly lower than one in 50 - really big odds.
  2. Put Petrol in a Diesel Mitsubishi and drove it: Have you observed any kind of performance difficulties since putting the incorrect fuel in the L200 2.5 DI-D Twin Cab? If so, have it emptied no matter the volume of Petrol or even the contamination ratio. Continually driving a car that is already beginning to suffer from the effect of fuel contamination will definitely be responsible for more and more damage being done to your fuel system parts.
  3. Would you like security?
    Then get it emptied. Regardless of the contamination ratio, there is always some degree of danger connected with running a Diesel engine on Diesel contaminated with the wrong fuel. Likely results of driving on the wrong fuel include things like the engine refusing to start, running lumpy, losing power, wearing of the high-pressure pump, worn or bunged injectors, and the like. These are a few of the most typical Petrol in Diesel signs and symptoms, and in the event that you notice any of them then cease driving and get it drained right now.

Petrol in Diesel FAQs

When someone has put Petrol in a Diesel car they have a few very common questions. So we have compiled a list of the most Frequently Asked Questions for you

I put Petrol in a Diesel car and drove it. What do I do?


Turn off the car as soon as possible and call us. Continuing to run a vehicle on the wrong fuel can potentially damage it. We will be able to give you advice and assistance based on your circumstances

Will driving a Diesel car on Petrol cause damage to it?


It can. However, if the problem is caught and remedied quickly the risks will be minimal. Of the 1,500 vehicles we attend every month, less than 0.5% have suffered and substantial damage requiring parts replacement.

How much Petrol can I get away with in a Diesel car?


The safe answer is none. However you might be able to get away with a very low contamination ratio. That being said, we always highly recommend draining anything over a 5% contamination ratio asap.

I know about petrol in diesel, but what about Super Unleaded?


Putting Super Unleaded, or Shell V-Power, BP Ultimate Unleaded, etc, will have the exact same effect as putting regular unleaded petrol in your diesel car and will need to be drained out and flushed.

Will getting you to do a fuel drain void my warranty?


No! The EU Block Exemption Regulations clearly state that "the work can be carried out by as long as that garage uses manufacturer approved parts and correctly follows the manufacturer's service schedule."

Can I top it up with Diesel and add some 2-stroke oil?


This might work on some vehicles in some cases, but in the majority on instances it won't and you risk damaging the Lambda sensors as well as fuel pump and injectors, just as a regular misfuel.
